Subject [jira] Commented: (COUCHDB-947) /_restart API requires "Content-Type: application/json"
Date Mon, 15 Nov 2010 21:26:14 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/COUCHDB-947?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12932204#action_12932204

Jan Lehnardt commented on COUCHDB-947:
--------------------------------------

I take my previous statement back and pronounce the opposite.

The reason is any website could restart your local CouchDB (or any CouchDB under a well known
URL) by sending a form submit to that URL. By requiring the Content-Type to be application/json,
we ensure an HTML form can't do this.

It's inconvenient, but required. Sorry.

> The "/_restart" API requires "Content-Type: application/json" header. This is not coherent
because the API doesn't need parameters to be passed using JSON.
